We all come across words of which the meaning we do not know. Dictionaries are a tremendous help in these situations. But people who spend most of their time in front of a computer find it far more convenient to use an online dictionary rather than a real one. Thankfully the internet has a plethora of options to offer when it comes to online dictionaries. However these dictionaries sometimes offer various definitions that carry a different set of nuances. What you need is an online tool that gathers meanings of words from various online resources. And this is exactly what “Definitions.Net” offers.
Definitions.Net is a free to use web service that lets you look up the meanings of words. But unlike any other online dictionary, this dictionary lets you look up the meanings of words as offered by various reputed online dictionaries. When you type in a word and click to look for its meaning, you are provided sets of definitions from Princeton’s WordNet, Random House Webster’s College Dictionary, Kernerman English Learner’s Dictionary, and Webster Dictionary. You can read the meanings offered by all of these online sources.
In addition to showing you meanings of the word, you are provided the translation of the typed word in numerous other languages. Knowing the equivalent of an English word in your own language is a massive help in understanding what a word means.
A featured word is also offered every day to help you build up your vocabulary. This is offered right on the homepage. You are shown the word, its meaning, and its translations into other languages all in a single small box. Also present on the homepage are popular word lookups categories into various classes such as People and Places.
